The San Diego Chargers have selected Antoine Cason, cornerback out of Arizona.
I like this pick. It was not a shocker, mostly automatic at this point.
The Bolts needed another standout corner alongside Antonio Cromartie. Cason is the type of guy that can step in right away. I don’t know if he can be a shut down player, and he won’t be the fastest guy on the field, but he spreads himself around.
Most of all I like his character. Appears to be a good guy, smart and looks like a real gamer. Mentally tough and understands the game. That’s huge.
Again, it might have been a easy pick, but the Chargers are fortunate to have a player like Cason.
At this point, time for the Chargers to take a break. No 2nd, 3rd or 4th round pick. See you back at selection #160 unless there is a trade. Smoke ‘em if you got ‘em.
